Good Works enables professionals and entrepreneurs to stay true to good ethics at work and the field of whistleblowing is no exception.

As mentioned in our leader article on
‘Just Culture’ in the aviation industry
, a good employer does whatever they can to ensure employees can with confidence speak up inside the firm about matters of public concern.

“In the long run doing the right thing is just good business.”

Our network includes leading experts in this field.

Public Concern at Work (PCaW).

To get you the best available advice we are working closely with the UK’s leading authority on whistleblowing – Public Concern at Work (PCaW). Established in 1993, PCaW have led the new approach to whistleblowing that – both at home and abroad – recognises the key role it can play in anticipating and avoiding serious risks that arise in and from the workplace.

Public Concern at Work aims to help make whistleblowing work so that dangers, wrongdoing and serious risks that threaten the public good are deterred or at least detected before serious damage is caused. They pursue this aim through a free confidential advice line, the support and services they provide to organisations, policy work and public education activities. Through these activities they promote the role of whistleblowing in furthering organisational accountability, individual responsibility and public confidence. All their activities help to promote the public interest and are for the public good in that they benefit citizens, consumers, patients, regulators, shareholders, tax payers and the vulnerable, both individually and collectively.
